The Gemini Willians Astudillo’s performance stunned with a 46 mph pitch


0

Willians Astudillo usually takes fastballs, not throws them.

On Friday night, the Twins utility field – he spent time on the catcher, first, second and third bases this season – took the mound for the Minnesota Twins in their 10-3 loss against the Angels.

The 29-year-old Venezuelan did not disappoint, sending Kurt Suzuki (lineout), Luis Rengifo (groundout), and David Fletcher (lineout) in order for seven pitches at the bottom of the eighth.

While its efficiency was amazing, it was secondary to its speed – or lack thereof.

The “La Tortuga” pitches were surpassed at 72.5 mph, while launching a strangely dazzling pitch at 46 mph – five mph slower than the heavyweight named Astros hurler Zack Greinke thrown on Monday.

The entire dugout was watching the radar rifle during its brief relief appearance.

“I mean, there’s no way I’m not going to be, is there?” The director of the Gemini, Rocco Baldelli, said. “Everything is part of it.” But a nice clean entrance, and no sweat for him. I don’t think he sweated.

I’m not surprised he can launch it [46] mph strikes and zips here when he wants a 75 mph fastball. He does everything. ”
